WS Atkins plc completes the acquisition of nuclear services division of EnergySolutions
WS Atkins plc, the design, engineering and project management consultancy, is pleased to announce that on 11 April 2016 it completed its previously announced acquisition of the Projects, Products and Technology segment of EnergySolutions.
PP&T is an innovative nuclear energy business, comprising 650 people delivering a wide range of technical engineering and programme management services for the decontamination and decommissioning of high hazard government nuclear facilities.
Professor Dr Uwe Krueger, CEO said, "This acquisition accelerates our nuclear strategy and creates a global platform. Our combined business is well positioned in all the major nuclear markets in North America, UK, Europe, Middle East and Asia Pacific. In the US, which has the largest nuclear fleet, we are at the top table for decommissioning, site operations, major projects and consultancy."
Atkins acquired PP&T for an enterprise value of US$318m. The consideration was funded from Atkins' existing cash resources and available committed bank facilities.
